Subject: U.S. Blues ?
acording to DeadBase X (and DeadBase on line, there was no encore for this show ++++ there was a Sugar Mag to close 2nd set----can anyone confirm this ?
Also recording is kinda lacking, but once again, it is the only one here so I am trying to get everything, so I am glad it is here too.

Subject: Black Peter!
A boomy aud with some unfortunate cuts and splices but it's all we have for this show apparently, and let's be thankful for it.

I like every show from November of 78 but with the exception of 12/12 the December shows prior to this one have left me cold (I'm listening in chronological order). There've been moments of course but this is the first one to really perk up my ears and get me seriously boogieing. Jerry just sounds way more into it than he has.

If nothing else, have a listen to Black Peter as you're passing through. Jerry plays _and_ sings the living shit out of it. Great stuff.

And as always with these auds, a little EQ really helps.

Subject: Hmmm...
Recording a bit fuzzy, and feels back-of-the-room distant. Jerry seems to flub the first line of both sung verses. Mid to end of the break, you cant hear him solo at all.

Terrapin, far better sound, vocal and instruments clear. 13:23, a long one...but no great inspiration in the transition to Playin.
